What a yummy cookie! I had plenty of "taste" in mine, and they were very soft and moist. I did have to add more flour, since I was having problems with my dough being too wet and not rollable. I only rolled mine in sugar and cinnamon. I will def. be keeping this in my cookie recipe box! Thanks!

I can barely bake anything, but I love making this recipe because it is so simple, quick and easy to make! It's very yummy, a good way to use up apples (I have used green apples as well) and it makes for a great gluten free cookie too!

These cookies were really easy and simple, which is a must because I am no baker; at least not yet! The only thing to watch is that they easily overcook, so take them out before you really think they are done. They will still be soft, but when you touch the top you will feel a bit of a hardened crust. When cooked properly, they are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside. Some I overcooked and they were still nice and chewy, but the bottoms burned. My husband asked for BIG cookies, so I made a few really large size. I sort of flattened those and they came out very well, but they did not develop the characteristic crack. I also do not know why some bakers left the nutmeg out of the topping since that was awesome. My husband still cannot believe I made these from scratch, heh heh heh.

Just made cookies today. They are awesome. Took them to my Dad and the neighbor (my surrogate Mom)..."best cookies I ever ate". The only thing I did different was to drizzle a caramel icing over them to add the caramel flavor...awesome. Will definitely add them to my holiday and everyday recipes...especially in "apple season".

These are delicious! I added 1/2 cup applesauce and omitted the nutmeg from the topping. Yummmmmm.

I have made these cookies twice and both times they were eaten in less time than it took to make them! The first time I made them I followed the recipe exactly, the second time I added cinnamon baking chips to the batter. Needless to say, these have quickly become a family favorite! Thanks for sharing!

A nice seasonal cookie recipe. I had smaller apples than the recipe calls for so I grated one and half. I also threw in some raisins, they were really good with it. They turned out really moist and chewy! I'll definitely make these again!

I hate to give these a bad rating however they tasted a bit bland and like baking soda. I let the batter sit for a few days and that flavor disapeared ... however they were still bland. I added the mixture to roll them in the mixture as well as a tsp of apple pie spice. I also added pecans. I then rolled them in another mixture and baked as directed ...pretty good

Oh, these were so yummy! I can only imagine how good they would be with just a little vanilla ice cream. These were very easy to make. The dough was a bit soft but very easy to work with. I used Crisco, and while the cookies spread a little bit, they didn't 'overspread' as Kittencal commented on with the butter. They cooked up nicely and turned into a soft almost chewy cookie. The sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg was perfect. So good! I baked mine for about 13 minutes and ended up with 26 devine cookies.
